Chontal!

This weekend we went to Chontal, Rosa's home town, a nice village which is about three hours away from Quito. It was amazing, our group was quite big (about 12 people) and we had a lot of fun. The first day we went swimming in a river, which was located directly behind our hostal. We all needed a refreshing after the long bus journey so the river was welcomed! In the evening we played a lot of ¨cuarenta¨ the typical card game Ecuador's. I am sure that I already got addicted:D
The next day we hiked to Rosas parents Finca, a really nice place. We learnend a lot about plants and We saw all kinds of interesting plants (bananas, cacao, coffee, watermelon, peanuts and a lot more), just awesome!
We got back to Quitos traffic jungle on Sunday at about 6:30pm, to be fit for lessons on Monday morning.

Thanks to Rosa for this great weekend!!

¡Vamos a Baños!











If you search for the best combination of Extreme Sports, Relaxing and Fiesta you should definetly make a trip to Baños. Guidede by Juan Medina our program of three days in baños was a great success. Especially the Canyoning on Sunday was the Highlight of the tour. Climbing down waterfalls with an altitud of up to 45 meters was a real adrenalin rush for us. But also the hiking and mountainbiking to great waterfalls like the "Pailón del diablo", the "termas calientes" in the night, the panorama view of Baños, the Chiva tour and of course the fiestas at night were awesome and made our trip to an adventure=)
